INTRODUCTION This study aims to assess the usefulness of day 3 (49 to 72 hours) pre-phototherapy total serum bilirubin (TSB) in predicting subsequent significant hyperbilirubinaemia (SHB) and the feasibility of early discharge for term and near-term glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficient newborns. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective cohort(More)
As congenital hearing impairment has a worldwide incidence of 4 to 5 per 1000 babies and is thus one of the most common congenital problems seen today, universal newborn screening has a crucial role to play in its early detection and intervention. It provides the opportunity for better outcomes and normal language development. Prior to embarking on a(More)
